Oh cassafrass, I am loving that purse and pouch, and your little helper is adorable.

I was too! It was harder than I thought it would be to send them out.
Yeah, my little helper totally knows she's adorable too. She hams it up like no other. Don't forget this little number:

(In my head, she's saying "I love you tail! You're always there for me!")

So, I thought I took pics of all of the stuff I sent emlee_bee (well, to her sister really), but I can't for the life of me find them. Perhaps I had a dream about taking the pictures?!

Anyways, her sister took off with most of the stuff as soon as the package was opened, so I'm posting the pictures I have of what I made.

The long story short is that her little sister plays the same instrument that I played all through college. So, I made her a music bag for taking to rehearsals (or perhaps just to school). I almost had to keep it for myself though!

This is a little pouch I made to match the big bag. (And my kitty, Eva, pausing in her eternal hunt for the perfect spot to play... note that she dropped her mouse to check out the pouch... this must be IMPORTANT stuff!)

Other than these, I sent:
*A super soft pillow that I made for her cat to nap on (it has "meow" stitched on it).
*A couple of music books (Disney favorites and Christmas tunes for the Oboe) - again, emlee_bee's sister was the PERFECT partner for me, she's me 14 years ago!! I was so excited about getting to pass down some of those books to an aspiring musician!
*A cute little cat notebook (totally store bought!)
*A couple of cat toys. I'm sorry I don't have pics of these, I totally should since I make them all the time. I work in kites, so I have a bunch of ripstop nylon around. It's nice and crunchy, so I make little stuffed mice with a bit of catnip in them. They're all crunchy, and I find that the kitties LOVE them. I'll try to take pics of the ones at home tonight and post them tomorrow.

I completely understand the basis of the swap and I swear I had everything ready to go on time.  I just don't feel it's fair to call someone a flake when they don't know the situation.   Undecided
Ok - I feel like this is my fault and don't want people getting upset. When I hadn't heard anything by this morning, I assumed that it was time to get the ball rolling so that there was time for the potential angel(s) to craft and mail ASAP. I apologize for jumping too quickly to an assumption.

Now, who wants another kitten picture?! How about Sarge contemplating a nice tasty beverage? Smiley

Ruh roh... it looks like we may have a flaker. I've messaged her, her partner has messaged her, and neither of us have heard back. I'm giving her til the end of the day before I really start the wheels in motion for a flaker, but BOO on a flaker, especially for our girl who needs some lovin!

Anyways, I'm planning on being the angel, but I wanted to give everyone else the option to help me out. yvonne lives in the Netherlands, so you'd need to be willing to ship overseas. But I was thinking that if 2 of us angeled for her, she'd get a splendid amount of love, especially since it's her first swap, not to mention she had to end the suffering of her wonderful Belle!! Let me know if you're interested, don't worry if you're not. I'll get her something wonderful together, but I wanted to give y'all a chance to angel as well if you want.

On a more positive not, how about some pictures of a kitten being cute? I call her my roly poly when she gets like this.

And then, she's all worn out, so it's time to nap

A pic & movie obese post of how swap newbies are the shit.

Seriously! What an awesome package!!! I love all the toys, they're adorable! I may have to make my own kitty zen garden... perhaps put it on my desk at work. Hahaaa.

So, emlee_bee sent out to me, and WOW her package was awesome.

First off, a picture of it all (2 bags, stickers, art for my wall AND 2 cat blankets):

Sarge laying claim to BOTH cat blankets. Eva is slowly planning her retaliation, trust me.

Sarge investigating the bag. There is a big zip up messenger style bag with the CUTEST cat fabric on the outside and inside. Inside that bag was a smaller bag that is a perfect match to the bigger bag. (I lovelovelovelove them!) Also, pictures for my wall, which I also love. I adore the style and the colors. It's almost like she read my mind.

And last, but not least, the back of one of the cat blankets. I'm crafting for emlee_bee's little sister, so she had her sister draw out the design. I think it's so cute, and Sarge has taken a liking to his new napping partner. Smiley

Thanks so much!! I love my package!

Eva's wondering when she can help me start crafting. I think she's expecting a few extra toys to be made on the side.

Ok, I sent to Meredithy last week, and I just can't wait. I have to post pics. Sorry, the light wasn't very good.

(The whole deal)

The purse

Closeup of the pocket on the outside. "With enough caffeine, I could rule the world."

An excuse to show a picture of "the boss". She was making sure the stitchwork was satisfactory.

Ok, it looks a little like... poo. BUT! It's homemade coffee scented air freshner for her car! And it closes, so it doesn't get too intense!

The tea cannister, which allegedly didn't make it.  Cry

Notecards w/ envelopes

Last but not least, a picture of a few extra goodies!

Oh! Added bonus! Recipe to roast your own coffee with a popcorn maker.

I hope you liked it Meredithy!

shewantsxglamor - I'm so glad you liked your loot!! I was worried because a lot of it didn't turn out as planned at ALL.

Ok, pictures! Sorry it took so long, but I hope it's worth the wait. I received my package late last week, and Sarge has been the happiest boy since they arrive.

Sarge, checking out the goodies after I opened the package.

How can you tell its love at first sight? Check out his hind legs!!! He's had himself wrapped up in the whispy scarf toy (sorry, I don't know what to call it) and the bag for like 3 days straight. And I keep catching him with the felt toys in him mouth, walking around like he's the biggest badass in the world. It's funny how toys make my cat act like he's tough.

One more for posperity. The felt toys are SO cute!! And the cat board with the bells... I had no idea a cat could get so much pleasure out of cardboard and bells. I catch him sliding across it all the time.

I need to print a picture of my man to put in the picture frame. I love this color of green, and it's so cute!! And the treats? Thank you thank you thank you! I was going to make some over the weekend but ended up horribly side tracked. Soon though, Sgt Pepper will be eating like a king!

Thank you thank you thank you! deceptive.fragileness is an AWESOME swap partner, making the perfect toys for my little man and me!
